The views were fabulous and the owners were friendly. We had access to a field to walk the dog which was perfect. There were a few things in the house that needed attention for example door handles and it would be a good idea to have locks on the bathroom doors. A visitors book would be a good idea. Overall though we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the weather was kind to us.
